COMMUNICATION : 

BRETHREN, 

I CONliRATULATE you on our again meeting ui'u 
der circumstances of ticcustonied interest, and in a 

ace consecrated to so many agreeable recollections. 

Since ou. list session I have received coTninunicatioii 
iroi;i the Grand Lodges of Lower Canada, Vermont, 
New-fr .npsViTe, NewTork, New-Jersey, Pennsylvania, 
and Tenne«se? A permanent order of the Grand 
Lodge requires me iv> , resent such an analysis of these 
&s have claims upon on- . arlicuUr notice. One resolu- 
tion of the Gran^^ L'n]\T' of New-York seems only to de- 
mand it This eX'KvsHes Hs disapprobation of the prac- 
tice in which many subordinate Lodges hnd indulged of 
publishing an account of t xpu>3>x>ns and suspensions 
in the newspapers : and prohibits in future the publi- 
cation of an expidsion in any mavnkr, except to the 
fraternity, or within the walls of a lodge. It was justly 
deemed a departure from maiir>nic pr'uciples and dixiy 
to unveil to llie public eye the venial faults of a biother, 
cr t^caVl In 'be of public rcEentnaent to pimkh 



^ai and private Wi^ng's. I recommsad t© your cofisideiSr 
ation the propriety of adopting a similar regulatitn here. 

As I was necessarily absent from the state during the 
only portion of the year in which I could with propriety 
and convenience have visited many of the lodges under 
our jurisdiction^ I was compelled to deny myself the 
pleasure of visiting any. Early in the year I prepared* 
and instructed the secretary to forward deputations to a 
sufficient number of faithful and intelligent brethren in 
different parts of the state to visit the lodges, and wha 
were directed to superintend their labors, examine their 
proceeding's, give them such instructions as they should 
appear to require, and report to me in detail upon their 
own acts and upon the present condition and future 
prospects of the Ledges. From some of these brethrei> 
1 have had no communications ; from others I learn that 
their commissions unfortunately never came to hand. 
The Right V.''orshipful brother, Elisha B. Smith, of Ha- 
lifax, deputed to visit King Solomon Lodge No. 56, a^ 
Northampton Court House, has alone made a report. It 
will be read to the Grand Lodge. 

Since the last Grand annual communication I have 
l»;ranted dispensations to brethren to form three new 
Lodges, to wit, Western Sun Lodge, in Wake county. 
Golden P'leece Lodge, at Milton, in Caswell county, and 
liising Sun Lodge, at Rock Landing, in Halifas county^ 

I have now <!nl y to express the pleasing hope and con- 
fident expeciaiion which I cherish, that in all our deliber 
rations we shall be influenced solely by a iervent desire 
to elevate and sustain the honors of Masonry, advance 
the happiness of its votaries, and promote feelings axjrd*

On motion of the R. W. Grand Senior War™ 
den. Ordered^ That the coiiimittee appointed 
(o examine and report oo the proceedings of 
Taylor Lodge, be discharged from the further 
consideration thereof ; and that the said pro- 
ceedings, with the petition of said Lodge for a

ter.

The R. W. Grand Junior Warden, Bro.

been referred the suhjeet of increasing the a- 
mount of annual contributions from subordinate 
Lodges, subtnitted the foilowing report; which 
on the suggestion of Brother Henderson, was 
ordered to tie on the table until next meeting.* 

REPORT. 

The undersigned, two of the committee ap- 
pointed by the most worshipful Grand Master 
to examine the accounts of the Grand i'reasur- 
er ; and to enquire into the expedi«^ney of in» 
•reading the annual dues, to be paid by the sub- 
ordinate Lodges under the jurisdiction of this 
Grand Lodge, beg leave to report : That 
having examined the accounts of the Grand 
Treasurer^ your committee find a halancp due 
by him, of three hundred and seventeen dollars 

% 



iO 

and eighty e'ghi cents, ou the 30th day of Nc- 
vember last. 

Your comirittee have aSso examined the ac- 
counts of the different Lodges, and iind that ' ' 
there are twenty in arrears to the Grand Lodge ; 
the ftggregate amount of which is s ven hun- 
dre.i and n nefy eight dollaris and fifty cents ; of 
this sum, it is tl^e opinion ot Your commiftee, 
that not more than one fourth part will be 
eolleeted, as a number of them are in arrears 
from Sve to Fune yeurs. 

Your eommitloe therefore are of opinion, that 
it is expedient to increase the present dne^^Jif- 
ty per cent, say {ii'teen instead of ten dollars ; 
but they are of opinion that the present charges 
for dispensations and charters should not be en- 
creased. Your eommiltes are induced to re- 
commend this iiicrease, as the Lodges have 
greatly diminisljed ; for aUhongh tl^e youngest 
Lodge bears No. 68, there are but 33 Lodges, 
which can be considered, as properly under ih^ 
jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of this state, 
and cut of that number there are not rssore than 
^0, that are in (he habit of pay ing their annual 
dues. Your committee therefore recommend 
that the Grand Secretary be directed to issue 
Dotices to all the Lodges, ivh ch are three years 
or upwards in arrears, that unless the dun are 
paid at the next grand annual communication, ) 
their charters will ht^ arrested. 

Submitted, W. B. LOCKHART.
